Abstract [en]

Wireless communications in dairy farms can be used in order to provide the farmer with useful information such as the activity of the cows. Nowadays, DeLaval is commercially using a wireless uplink system for cows’ activity monitoring limited though mostly to the indoors area of a farm. Throughout this paper we present four systems that can be used in dairy farms for extending the coverage area while also introduce a duplex two-way(uplink and downlink) communication scheme. We argue that the main trade off between the proposed systems is the current consumption versus the required coverage area. We evaluate the proposed systems and show the advantages of a duplex communication. Further on, we proceed in a simple cost analysis of the systems that is essential since they are addressing to a commercial reality.
